Kean tips protests to dwindle

BY foxsports • November 7, 2011

Rovers attempted to quell the unrest on Saturday against Chelsea by banning supporters from displaying protest banners before and during the game. However, that did not stop a plane from flying overhead during the 1-0 defeat at Ewood Park showing the message 'Steve Kean out'. Kean has been thrilled with the effort and endeavour his players have been showing on the pitch recently, even though they have not been getting their rewards. However, the Rovers tactician believes the negativity on match days is affecting the players, something he believes is unhelpful as they try and avoid the drop. "I didn't see the plane and I don't know what it said," commented Kean. "This has been going on for a while and all we can do is accept it's likely to be a part of match days. "The players are probably becoming a bit disappointed with it all because they are putting so much effort into trying to win games and I don't think any fan inside the ground could possibly say we didn't deserve something out of this game. "If we weren't playing well or working hard, then okay. But we are, and the players aren't enjoying the negativity. We are all solid as a group, though. "I think it will start to dwindle if we keep putting in performances like this one. If I'm going to get a bit of stick, I'll take it. I'm more concerned about getting on the training ground on Monday and getting on with work."
